Best sail we've ever been on. What a great way to experience St. John. Dave and Kimmie are wonderful! They are very knowledgeable and professional. We spent the whole day sailing and snorkeling. Moored in Maho Bay. Went snorkeling off of Whistling Cay. Kimmie makes very good sandwiches, as well as a killer painkiller. While sailing next to Lovango Island,... More

An absolutely beautiful day of sailing, snorkeling, and exploring. Captain Dave and First Mate Kaley took care to ensure our sailing and snorkeling comfort levels and tailored our trip accordingly. We headed out from Cruz Bay to the snorkel spot at Henley Cay (I think). We had options of snorkel or swim, flotation devices, or chaperoning in the dinghy. We... More

We were hoping for a nice sunny day with good snorkeling off of St Thomas, but we got a cloudy overcast windy day with large swells. Nonetheless Captain Dave and first mate Kaylee (?spelling) made it a very enjoyable trip. The seas were a bit rough but Dave's boat handling skills were superb - at one point we were all... More

A perfect day of sailing and snorkeling! My husband and I booked the full day sail with Cloud 9, which included lunch. I had never been on a sailboat before, and Dave and Kim made me feel perfectly comfortable with their knowledge and professionalism while still making it fun. Dave found great snorkeling spots for us to enjoy, and shared... More

We had a great time with Dave and Kim. We told them our goal was to find the sun. Dave did an amazing job steering us away from the rain that was all around! Kim's Painkillers were fantastic as well. Great afternoon!

What a perfect morning on the water! Captain Dave and Kim were so nice and welcoming, and made us feel comfortable (and made excellent cocktails). A bit of snorkeling and then a hour or two of sailing in the sun. So much better than larger group excursions I've been on in St. John before.

They took us to a bay to snorkel and have lunch( not provided on a 1/2 day trip), but they would have gotten it if... More

We took a day trip on Cloud 9 and felt there was a lack of attention to safety by the captain and first mate. When we all travel to these lovely places and engage in boating, it is easy to forget that there is risk involved. We are focused on enjoying ourselves. But unfortunately, there is risk involved and we... More

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your day on Cloud 9. While I understand you got scared by a loose flapping rope, the fact is you did not suffer any type of physical injury, nothing actually happened to you. We take a thousand people a year sailing and no one has ever had an injury on... More

The wife and I had a wonderful day with Jason and Leslie of Cloud 9. Leslie's knowledge of the snorkeling spots and wildlife added so much to the experience. Sailing around St John's beautiful waters was extremely relaxing with their warm hospitality. We saw turtles, sting rays, octopus, all kinds of beautiful fish and coral. We were pleasantly surprised to... More
